The Ark Docks at Myers Dinner Theatre in Hillsboro, Indiana!
This exciting new musical is sure to delight and inspire audiences of all ages as they enter your theatre transformed into an ark only to discover they are the animals and this is not only Noah’s adventure, it’s theirs. A fresh take on a familiar tale, it’s the story of how one family learns to brave life’s rough waters by sticking together. Michael McLean, the renowned composer of more than 20 best-selling albums, gives us an incredibly uplifting score, ranging from pop to gospel. With songs that’ll have you dancing in the “isles,” and one of the most adventurous stories ever told, The Ark proves that, just like the waters, the depth of human emotion knows no bounds.
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for I regret that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. And God said unto Noah: The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make thee an Ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and everything that is in the earth shall die. But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the Ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee. And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt come unto thee into the Ark, to keep them alive with thee. And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
